BE SCAM AWARE – VACCINE SCAMS

Sadly, there are many people exploiting the current climate and taking the opportunity to scam others. Nationally, people have received suspicious calls, house calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.

To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points.

  • The vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free to people in priority groups.

The NHS will contact you when it is your turn

You will not be asked to pay for the vaccine

 

  • The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details

 

  • The NHS are not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine

 

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. If you feel vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police by calling 101.

The Parish Council is continually co-ordinating a community response to Covid-19. There is information throughout the pages of the website about the support available through the Parish Council, village hall, local business and volunteers for our elderly and vulnerable people as well as anyone affected by the virus. Please use the Contact Us form to request support, volunteer or make suggestions.

Village Hall Update - Covid 19 - please go to KF Village Hall page

Want to get involved with youth projects ?

Local Parish Councils have been contacted by a Youth Development Worker for Hambleton with an idea to help set up and sustain voluntary youth projects. They can offer to host consultations with young people to find out what is important to them locally, this can obviously be done online. They can also recruit and train volunteers and provide support with accessing funding, finding activities and resources and ongoing development.

In preparation for better days to come we wanted to inform the local Parishes of this opportunity and seek to hear from parents and young adults in Kirkby Fleetham, Fencotes, Scruton and Langton who would be interested in possible projects for young adults.

Anyone interested can be put in touch with Youth Development for Hambleton via kffparishclerk@gmail.com

Land Still Needed

The Parish Council is still keen to develop a recreation area for all ages, especially as there may be grant money available to assist with this. We are seeking a plot of land suitably placed  within the parish, of a minimum quarter acre but up to half or one  acre, for purchase or long term lease.

If anyone feels they could help in this matter we would love to hear from you to discuss further, so please contact our parish clerk – Mr N Lowe, 01609 748139, or email  kffparishclerk@gmail.com

Flying the flag for sustainability

Our Village Hall will soon become just the second in the county to install electric vehicle charge points.

Two grants and some of the profit from last year’s village plant stall are being used to fund the project, and installation will take place in the spring

The idea earned the support of Trustees because the charge points will be a service to residents (and their visiting friends and family) who may wish to own an electric vehicle in the future and do not have off-street parking. It will also be a service for residential guests at the Black Horse Inn. Not only that, but as the 2021 Policy Exchange think-tank report on charge point roll-out in the UK identifies Yorkshire as one of three areas which is lagging behind the rest of the nation, and also warns of charging blackspots in rural areas, this venture ticks those boxes too. Once complete, the dual installation - with paying facility - will be able to charge two cars at any one time, taking 1-2 hours. The unit will be sited at the front of the village hall, just inside the low wall, and its location will appear on the national EV charge point location map.

By Jean Morley, who championed this idea and made it possible

Lightsource BP Solar Farm Update

March will see a large number of daily large vehicle transits, many preceded by an escort car with flashing yellow light.

They will be transporting frames to the Lightsource BP site until around the end of March. Solar panels will also start to arrive from the beginning of March through to the end of April.

The site construction is at the phase of erection of the frames which will later hold the panels. This process involves piling which will probably go on until the end of March.

Return of the Plant Stall for 2021

Our community plant stall is now open for its eighth consecutive year. The stall will be at The Willows, next door to the Black Horse Inn and will run throughout April, May and most of June.

As usual, the stock will change on an almost daily basis with new annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables, all making an appearance as soon as they are ready for display.

As usual, all funds raised will go to improve the facilities at the village hall, so please continue to support the venture.

Additional Activity RAF Leeming

There will be increased aircraft movement from RAF Leeming as the Station hosts exercising aircraft until 30th April 2021.

Short periods of low flying by jet and rotary aircraft may be necessary, along with some exercising at night.

RAF Leeming  understand their responsibility as good neighbours to inform the local community of such events that are additional to their normal flying activities and every effort will be made to keep the disturbance to a minimum.
